Yes your are correct. Our families were in Tuckahoe and Ocean City. There was always a garden where someone lived, even in the city. Wheerever there was a patch of sunny ground there grew vegetables, grapes and flowers. My father always maintained a 50'X 100' garden with enough vegetables to last well into the fall and winter and an arbor with enough grapes to make about 100 gallons of red wine every year. I can taste that wine to this day. We lived outside Washington DC and those trips in the late 1950's and 1960's to Tuckhoe and Ocean City were always a treat for my sister and I. We too took the back way down NJ Route 49 all the way from the Deleware Memorial Bridge to Tuckahoe. My sister referrered to Rt. 49 as the forever road. Me, I make my living growing trees flowers and maintaining historic landscapes as a gardener although I now supervise gardeners and landscape contractors. I believe gardening came natural to us. It is spring and this begins a new growing season. I cannot wait.
